perhaps try stealthsuits, seeing as the are 'invisible'(harder to hit)and are armed with b cannons (3 atks people!)
---nice hq, and an i ask, does the flamer serve you well?they tend to not perform well

I would drop one of the shield drones on the shas'el and add bring two of your troop selections up to 8. This will give you more firepower, at the loss of a little bit of survivability in your HQ.

i dont know if the flamer works well or not,as i said id just made the list and i have NO ONE at all to battle with well when i played marines and did have someone to battle with, my flamer[s] served fairly well, it was againt my own marines and it did quite well[i had to split my army in 2 because he didnt have an army]il drop a shieild drone then. the reason why theres no steath is 1] its only 500pts [ill make a 1000 later, than 1500]

Ok now for this one I would suggest that you drop the falmer and sheild drones. Reasoning is that in 500 ponit games that would be a huge point sink on you army. In there place add a TA. That should get you extra points. And the sheild drone would make you loose IC status which is the best in the game so try not to in the future.

Now for this one I would drop the flamer again and leave it alone. And the maths off anyway, the HWMT would make the crisis a 'vre and that would mean that it was 64 points. :P But over all that is a good set up for a crisis in 500 pont games.

Umm points cost again, it should be 90 points, where did the extra 7 come from, photon granades? but not that bad of a unit. If there is enough point left over make it 8 man and add a HWTL to not wast the rest of the squads shots.
